Chicago Man Gets Revenge on Snow Shovel Thief (VIDEO)
(CBS/WBBM) Don't mess with David Welles. Because it's his business, he's got a huge setup of security cameras around his house.
And they caught quite the drama after midnight last Wednesday outside his Chicago residence during the height of a blizzard.
First, somebody took his snow shovel. In a video that he's pieced together, obtained by CBS affiliate WBBM, you can see a woman out walking her dog outside, checking out her snow-covered car. She quickly grabs a snow shovel off Welles' front porch, then goes back to her car to shovel it out.
All is well and good, Welles says, but then she disappeared with the shovel.
It was payback time.
So, he covered her car in snow with his snow blower. Welles says it was not his intent to harm her vehicle, just make it difficult for her to extricate it.
Nearly 200,000 have viewed the video he posted online. To some, he's a hero; to others, a villain.
